About

When I was young, my mother took me out of school once a month to experience the culture of New York City. We attended plays, films, and went to museums. Her exquisite taste in clothing, food, and classic décor was an enduring influence. She inspired me to spend endless hours wandering NYC’s Museum Mile from the Metropolitan to the Frick.

From 2000 to 2003, I was employed in the jewelry trade full time. This experience brought my understanding and appreciation of jewelry to a new level. I worked closely with a GIA graduate gemologist and broadened my knowledge of gemstones and diamonds. Recently I have expanded my shop to include vintage art, particularly works on paper.

The pieces of jewelry and artwork on Etsy are all hand selected. I purchased them for their originality of design and quality of workmanship. Some pieces are antique and some are vintage. I hope you enjoy this collection as much as I enjoyed assembling it.
